Hey everyone!

 

I just had to get on here first thing this morning to share my SUCCESS.

 

I AM 3 YEARS CLEAN FROM ADDERALL!!!!!!!!!  OMG!!!!

 

I can't believe I made it this long, but I did and I am GRATEFUL.

 

I'm sorry I haven't been around the boards much, but I just moved back to Columbus, OH and still in the process of setting up my new place. Internet guy comes today so I should be able to hop on line by later tonight.

 

Anyhow, thank you everyone for your support during and over the years.  It's meant so much to me. Love you guys!!

 

Love,

 

LILTEX...oops, I mean LILOHIO.  ;)

A huge congratulations to you! Three years is such an accomplishment. You have continued to support us on here, and I think I can speak for everyone that you're an inspiration. I feel so lucky that I got to meet you in "real life." You've accomplished so much! Ironman, marathons, triathlons, getting a new job, just to name a few. You're the bomb, woman! Treat yourself tonight! Keep us posted on the move back home and new job.

Congrats lil tex. we quit the same date. So it's 3 for me too. It's been a wild ride but so worth it hasn't it?

I was just thinking about this journey. I am kind if bummed because I still get PAWS headaches three years later which JUST totally pisses me off. But on the other hand I have no desire to ever be back on it ever again.

Anyway, awesome job.

InRecovery, are you sure the headaches are PAWS? Maybe its something unrelated? Can u go into more detail what you are experiencing?

It is definitely related. It's just more of the same as what I have been feeling since I quit three years ago. It's not as bad as before for sure! But it is still the same thing. At it is worst it is an intense intense craving for adderall, but usually it is tensing in my neck and grinding my teeth in discomfort like due to a lack of something. It is always brought about when I am under stress and when I am in situations where I used to rely on adderall to get me through. But often times it will be for no reason at all. The difference between now and before is the duration of my PAWS. When it strikes, it doesn't last as long as before.

You have been describing that same headache ever since I have known you, even before we discovered it had a name called PAWS.  I hope it goes away from your life sometime soon!  Congratulations for three years ofRecovery, InRecovery, and for all you have accomplished in that time!

InRecovery,

A huge congratulations on 3 years! Treat yourself! You've done some amazing things during this time to show us we too can succeed post-adderall. I've considered you a part of my support system since I quit so know that you are making a difference for others, especially me! I'm very proud of you, sir!!

Hi InRecovery,

 

I wanted to chime in on congratulating you on reaching three years Adderall free. Thank you for sticking around the site. You are like a monument for all that pass through.

 

You have proved that a return to academia is possible and can be accomplished with excellence. You are a great role model for all the college students who have an increased exposure to the drug, a "logical" reason for using it, and then get trapped in the web of addiction. Thank you for being here on behalf of these young folks too.

I second what Jon said, InRecovery. That was my biggest fear when I quit. That I wouldn't be able to get back to a high-level of achievement in school. While I'm not there yet I'm taking big steps in the right direction!
